We tried to bump start, I tried to take any opportunity to run some higher speed laps to juice up the battery, and plugged in to a trickle charger when we took a longer break and overnight.
Other than the power problems the scrambler did everything that the smaller dirt bikes and the larger gs's did, with the only limitation being the operator .

A small sample of the company...

There were 18 of us, all women, more pics to follow.

The good news: I fell at least 4 times, 2 on each side, and didn't break anything! The sliders, folding shifter, and oberon pegs all held up. I am very pleased!
You did great! The Scrambler is one heavy low to the ground under suspended bike to be playing dirt rider on. I can see how its ok on a dirt road but Ive ridden dirt bikes all my life and could tell the Scrambler isnt one the second I saw it. I do like mine lots though and ride it every chance I get. My DRZe 400 is coming out to play now that the snow is melting and the trails are passable again.
